giffords. on the anniversary, republican tucson city councilman steve kozachek, known in tucson as steve k., organized a gun guy-back that allowed residents to turn in the unwanted weapons to the police department, in exchange for safeway gift cards, the grocery store chain that was the scene of the giffords shooting. they collected and destroyed more than 200 guns in that drive. but not without opposition. the national rifle association, of course, opposed the buy back and told npr that it will work with the arizona state legislature to re-write the law in order to make it illegal to destroy firearms in buy-backs. and one republican state senator even held his own gun buy-back on the same day as steve k. instead of destroying the guns, he and other gun rights advocates added them to their collections. just days after, he wrote this. the arizona republican party is an idealogical outliar, i see nothing showing that it is inclined to move anything but further away from the values of this community. i will, therefore, be changing my party register to democrat. joining me now, the rather than
heard and what we will hear tomorrow. steve hayes senior writer, juan williams fox news political analysts and charles krauthammer syndicated columnist. steve to you, this is a different environment, a different time, they needed a little bit of money. they opened it to corporate donations. you heard the president going there to say thank you for the money. >> yeah he didn't need to be re-elected this time. they are having a good time tonight. they are joking with each other and the crowd. there were moments joe biden was speaking he had the crowd fired up when he said president obama is just getting started. he repeated himself twice he is just getting started. he laid out policy agenda guns immigration and rebooting the economy and barack obama came on and was in a joef yell mood. >> for all of the talk we had during the campaign ofment o prt obama's ability to raise money it would be a million dollar campaign and the talk mitt romney had more corporate donors it would be a wash in cash. the president had no trouble raising enough money to get himself re-elected it is thanks in
but economically the ceiling has the capacity to deliver far more damage. you are talking like my friend steve kornacki here. what is failing to raise the debt ceiling? why is that going to be catastrophic? >> well, you know, first of all the stock and bond markets will really go haywire in a way they didn't when we were about to go over the fiscal cliff because government bonds are held by everybody. chinese central bank, japanese central bank, every single bank financial institution out there. so if there's any question over the value of those and they start to decline, these institutions have a great amount of leverage and interconnected with everything else and sort of see what happened in 2008. it's also this issue of, you know, who gets paid? if you start to have to say maybe soldiers get paid but not paying for the fuel or these doctors will get paid, you know, government is a huge force in our economy. like it or not. and the number of companies that would really be affected from walmart to every defense contractor to giant health care companies, if their ability to collect money that
it. so we've soeen it before. >> and i agree with steve on that, he has the audacity to disagree with me somewhat. i actually think the republicans looked at the fiscal cliff, they passed the senate bill, said it is up to you. they basically blinked and said we don't want to go over the cliff. so they know they don't really have it will them to want to default on the debt ceiling. the landscape is different from 2011, yes, they're still nutty and responding to that calculus. i don't think they're quite as credible in terms of actually causing a default. and take what? social security and medicare benefit cuts, that is tremendously unpopular, it would be a disaster. but also a catastrophe for the republican party. >> and this comes at a moment where they're being criticized from kind of all sides. i want to listen to something colin powell said yesterday about their identity problem. >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem. and i am still a republican. i think what the republican party needs to do right now, take a hard look at itself. the country i
it comes to debt, we're no longer kidding around. steve moore on more with stopping a far more sin -- sinister violation being done to the kids right now. steve, that would be a prop well played, would it not? >> it would. you know, i've been in the town for a long time, neil, as you know, and for 25 years, i've seen politicians of both parties using children as props for their political agenda. we saw the president do that today with his gun agenda, and it's always struck me as, i guess it struck you, that no one brings the kids up to the stage to talk about the enormous debt, which really is a form of taxation without representation if you think about it because they pay bills for things they never volted -- voted on. it's something both parties should pick up on, especially republicans if they want to have this fight with the president on the debt ceiling. you know, what are we doing about the kids that you care so much about? neil: you know, charlie, you represent young people to get their minds attune to what's going on, and the possibility, that their share of this burden wil
" steve. will the gop once again play the role of dr. no? this version of the action-packed thriller would not involve threatening the launch of a u.s. spaceship wan atomic powered radio beam. instead, the victim would be the united states economy and the potentially disastrous impact of failing to raise the debt ceiling brsh according to speaker boehner, the ends justify the means. in a statement yesterday, boehner asserted the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real, but so, too, are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. it was a response to this stern warning from the president on monday. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well being of the american people is not leveraged to be used. >> if the tenor of the president's last press conference of his first term is any indication about what he expects in his second term, prepare for a bond-style showdown as the government barrels towards its borrowing limit. that said, there might exist a solution that would allow congress to
pushing the more aggressive measures to end gun violence. steve bashir -- or governor steve bashir said i am a hunter and gun owner, but we all must be open to ideas, and most importantly of our children in schools. during the short session that begins in february. in your estimation and your suggestion, what steps should your state and other states be taking on a local level to end gun violence? >> well, actually, i talked to my mayor fairly frequently, one of the mayors against illegal guns. and unfortunately the general assembly in kentucky has prohibited local options. in fact, in my district in louisville, if police confiscate weapons, they actually have to auction them off, they can't destroy them. so they guarantee there's absolutely no reduction in firearms. that's unfortunate, but it's kind of symptomatic of what we face in the country. there are rural states where there's a great legacy of hunting and gun owners. it's much harder to get anything done that in marineland or new york, where an urban environment is much more dominant. >> sir, i wanted to get your take on a completel
this as they contemplate cutting funds for social security and medicare? an economist with ftn joins us and steve liesman, of course, our own senior economics reporter. good to see you both. lindsey, what kind of a threat is this to the economy? how do you see this? pretty scary stuff actually. >> i really don't see this as that big of a threat to the u.s. economy. i think this store sea little misleading talking about 401(k)s being drained by 5 25%. what this is 25% of new money. on net we're still seeing over 200 billion flow in on an annual basis to 401(k)s, a soyuzable amount of savings and it indicates that individuals look at 401(k)s as a vital vehicle for retirement savings. plus, that 25% is not just cash withdrawals, also loans against the balance, and in some cases it makes perfect sense to borrow against your 401(k). for example, if you're thinking about purchasing a car, taking out an auto loan, why wouldn't you borrow against your 401(k), you end up paying yourself back on the interest on the loan. >> i think that's crazy. i think that's absolutely nuts. where is your retirement money if you
. these guys, they remind me of steve jobs used to call these press conferences. and you say, you know ha he's going to do? he's going to unveil x and it turns out to be 10x. is mark zuckerburg capable of that amount of surprise? i don't know. >> he actually came up with the goods. >> it's so exciting. >> i have no idea, all i know is they've got a lot of shareholders who are much happier than they were not long ago. one harkens back to the week when it went public. think of morgan stanley, the criticism that firm took as a result of that ipo. the ceo said give us a year, let's see where things stand. maybe he'll end up looking better. >> would you use a video messaging product on facebook if we got that? >> well, i wouldn't. >> are you on facebook? >> no, i am not. >> that would be a bainier. >> however, i'm sure many would. >> i think so. 1 billion users. >> some sort of a voiceover ip, skype, they would go there, microsoft bought skype, or at least had looked at it, would they go down that road. i don't know. we'll see. >> they've done a good job of keeping the lid on it. nothing's leaked
. this is how we will be judged. steve? >> nbc's peter alexander. jumps into the cycle now, we have michael crowley, bureau chief. we talked about the executive orders there and there is real stuff there. the meat of all this is the legislation that obama is proposing and asking congress to act. you have republicans and a number of pro gun democrats including the senate majority leader harry reid who does not seem enthusiastic at the start of the debate right now. realistically, what do you think the most is that we can get out of this in terms of gun control laws? >> not that much. the orders are incremental and they will make some difference. they are not going to solve the problem as it is diagnosed. i don't see action in the congress. i wouldn't be surprised about a fig leaf measure and congress wants to show they did something that is toothless. i think that might be a realistic option. i don't think you will see very much in the way of the package the president proposed unless public opinion does seem to be moving a little bit. after the other big shootings, you don't see sentiment in
committee, steve scalise from louisiana. so we're going to be a deadbeat nation and this is important, republicans are anti-old folks, anti-young people, anti-sick people. all of those horrible things. what's year you action, sir? >> you know, it just sad this is what president obama is going to become in his second term. he seems to be the only person in washington that wants to talk about the nation defaulting on its debt. i think there's nothing that could be more irresponsible for somebody to suggest that america would default. i don't want us to do that. but just remember the debt ceiling the fact that we're hitting up against this max on our credit card again is a symptom of the spending problem in washington and president obama doesn't want to recognize that that problem exists. >> when you say no one is talking about defaulting on the debt, does that also include letting the debt ceiling lapse? >> well, you know, larry, what we're once again up on the debt ceiling. we have been here before, a year and half ago we were having this debate again. i supported a plan cut cap and ba

this congressman, steve stockman, of texas to threat be impeachment if the president pursues any infringement of gun rights. edwin meese is the late toast jump on that bandwagon. as the president has said many times, he believes in the second amendment, right to bear arms, and has no desire to limit the rights of responsible gun owners. but how can he do nothing and answer to the families of 20 children and 6 school staffers riddled with bullets? how can he answer the parents of slain 6-year-old ben wheeler who spoke with my colleague rachel madd ow on monday. >> just, just don't stop think being this. just keep thinking about this. keep this in your head. >> my dad would always say ben is going to do amazing things, and i always say now, i just didn't know it was going to be in his death. i thought it was going to be in his life. >> those are the people whom the president has to answer to today, tomorrow, and every day. joining us now is congressman john larson, democrat of connecticut. good afternoon, sir. >> good afternoon, martin. >> mr. larson, i have been struck by your public comments

idea that senator wyden of oregon has been working with us and one, a newer idea that steve and i dreamed up in a bar in italy a few years. first of all, the president has been talking about stimulating the economy with transportation infrastructure investment. ron wyden of oregon and a republican from north dakota have been pushing for a trip bond program, $50 billion to be distributed, $1 billion to every state. we love the program, but it is going to help metro states, urban states. this concept of oregon and north dakota senators is a billion to go out to every state, so little states and big states all get the same benefit. this would be distributed over six years and the cost to the treasury would be paid for. and there would be no debt incurred at the state level. we think that that proposal has tremendous potentials. senator hoeven came by to speak to us last year and wyden last year. mentioned your program and we would love to see it. the next thing i want to put on the table and this should scare the pants off of all of you. this is real and this is jack's work, so you k
